Shoulder Reconstruction Surgery in Kanpur

What is Shoulder Reconstruction Surgery?

Shoulder reconstruction surgery is an operative procedure in which stretched or torn soft-tissue structures that surround the shoulder joint, for example, the capsule, ligaments, and cartilage, are repaired to secure the shoulder joint in place. The treatment is mainly employed for the treatment of individuals with shoulder instability, to prevent recurrent joint dislocations, and to restore normal shoulder range of motion and function.

Shoulder instability is a chronic condition that causes the frequent dislocation of the shoulder joint. This occurs when the structures surrounding the shoulder joint cannot retain the upper end of the humerus (ball portion) in the glenoid (socket portion) of the shoulder due to an injury or tear. A partial dislocation is a subluxation, while a complete separation is a dislocation. The repeated dislocation of the humerus out of its socket is known as chronic shoulder instability. A tear in the labrum or rotator cuff and ligament tear in the front of the shoulder (a Bankart lesion) may lead to repeated shoulder dislocations.
